The Missoula Youth Symphony has a wonderful history of bringing the best teen orchestra players together from all of Missoula’s local high schools. The result is literally music to our ears. However, despite being the oldest community youth symphony in the state, the group did not have a logo.
Enter Design Missoula. Working with our team, Missoula Youth Symphony was able to create a logo that fit all of their needs, from use on t-shirts and sweatshirts to use on letterheads and websites.
An audition-only honors orchestra, the Missoula Youth Symphony has a long history of putting on memorable performances featuring the best musicians in town ages 14-18. The group, which practices once a week, is the only honors high school music ensemble in Missoula and the oldest in the state.
The Symphony wanted a logo that was music related as well as something that showed their level of professionalism and excellence. In addition, they wanted a logo that was fun, cool, and hip, like the group’s teen participants. Finally, they wanted to stay away from any of the colors in use at local high schools, so as to avoid any misunderstanding about affiliations.
The group wanted to utilize the logo mainly for concert programs, pieces of apparel, letterheads, and websites.
Designer Sara Kauk created a logo by starting with an artistic silhouette of a violin and integrating the name of the group into the body of the instrument. Missoula is written in a classic script, which gives the logo a timeless, professional, and artistic look, while Youth Symphony is written in an upper-case serif font that acts as a foundation for the image. The overall look of the logo is the perfect balance of hip and classic that appeals to teens, musicians, and music lovers alike.
The Missoula Youth Symphony took their organization to the next level by putting their new logo on their concert programs and apparel. What would you do if you have a logo that you loved?
